Christian Walking Club

"Ask where the good way is and walk in it" - Jeremiah 6:16

The Christian Walking Club is for people who enjoy walking and share the Christian faith. It is a national club with a programme of weekend and week events during the year throughout the UK and sometimes the world. Members span a wide range of ages and walking ability. Walks vary from countryside rambles to challenging, winter mountain days. Each walk is graded so those attending know what to expect. The events are a great opportunity yo make new friends, with time to get to know each other while walking, sampling tea shops or relaxing over an evening meal.

All events include space for worship, ranging from our own prayer times, meditations and services to attending local churches (sometimes small churches in rural areas) to encourage them. Members seek to be a witness in the places we stay, including youth hostels and activity centres.

There are also a number of local groups providing day walks throughout England and Wales. The closest groups to Essex are London, East Anglia and South Midlands. (London group:
